How to celebrate Pride at home
Virtual parties and events
Get educated and entertained, all in one fell swoop. Log on to Global Pride 2020 or Pride Inside for live-streamed events, exciting musical performances and interactive workshops. Alternatively, crank the tunes and host a virtual get-together. In the true spirit of Pride, create your own party with family and friends and cater with our top snack recipes and scrumptious sharing recipes. No party would be complete without an outstanding menu.
Want a fun activity to keep everyone in the party mood? Try a long-distance mixology masterclass with our favourite cocktail recipes and video tutorials with matching mocktails. Become an expert at shaking up a classic margarita, learn how to make a cosmopolitan or create the perfect espresso martini.
Get your bake on
Create a colourful masterpiece and expand your skills in the kitchen with our best ever rainbow bakes. Take some inspiration from the flag and try a simple batch of our rainbow cupcakes, our stunning rainbow zebra cake or rainbow rippled meringues. Go all out with a slice of our rainbow cheesecake, a true showstopper that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth.
Need a savoury option? Grab a slice of our rainbow pizza or one of our crunchy vegan rainbow spring rolls. Bring even more colour to your plate with our favourite rainbow recipes, from tasty traybakes, to salads and delightful desserts.
If you can, lockdown is a great time to research some UK LGBTQ+ charities and initiatives to support. You can also donate to Pride through Comic Relief who are collaborating with Sink The Pink – the largest LGBTQ+ collective in the UK – who will use your donation to support LGBTQ+ people in the UK and around the world. You could even start your own virtual fundraiser, or give time to a helpline or online support system.
Patronize your favourite independent LGBTQ+ owned businesses and producers, or look into ways you can support Pride in your local area. Show the love on social media and share your favourite pieces of content for all your friends to enjoy.
Education and entertainment
Plenty of people are using Pride month in lockdown to engage with LGBTQ+ literature, celebrating Pride on film or getting their fill of engaging podcasts and talks.
Need a practical activity to get stuck into? Grab an apron and take some inspiration from cookbooks by LGBTQ+ cooks. Whip up a feast for the family or dip into a cuisine you’ve always wanted to try.
